FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is the most popular means of transmitting website content to a hosting account. With an FTP software application that’s pre-installed on your desktop computer or laptop, you can establish a connection to your hosting server and copy all the website files that you need with a few mouse clicks. This is done via a simple-to-navigate GUI and it is as easy as dragging and dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to create separate accounts, each one with a different level of access to your server space, so if you have to give someone access, for instance – a web designer, they’ll be able to access only one specific directory and will not be able to access the rest of your web content or any other information, including personal details. Three prerequisites are compulsory to be able to connect via FTP – a hostname, which is usually an IP or a domain, a username and a password.

FTP Accounts in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will permit you to create multiple FTP accounts with only several mouse clicks through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and to define what files and folders each one can connect to. There is no upper limit on the total number of accounts that you are allowed to set up, so you will be able to have as many as you need at any given time. If you don’t want to use a particular FTP account anymore or if a designer has accomplished their task and you don’t want them to connect to your web content anymore, you can simply delete the account in question. The Control Panel’s FTP section will permit you to see all currently existing accounts listed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You’ll be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-config file, and so on. We also have an elaborate Help library, which can help you manage your FTP accounts should you come across any problem.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via FTP whatever the semi-dedicated plan that you have selected during the subscription process, as the FTP access is among the standard features that you’ll be able to take advantage of. All our packages come with an unlimited FTP account allowance, so you’ll be able to set up as many FTP accounts as you like from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you will be able to manage your web content too. All the accounts will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Control Panel and in case you don’t require a particular account any longer, you can simply remove it and block people who have used it previously from accessing it again. This option is especially useful in case you use the services of a designer or in case an IT person leaves your firm and you do not want them to access the website files anymore. An extensive Help database that includes how-to video clips will help you administer your FTP accounts if you do not have any previous experience.
